“Yeah, sure,” you tell me. “Haven’t you looked at the calendar lately? Christmas is 12 months away!”
Yes, I know that. But today is January 6th, Epiphany, officially the last day of the Christmas season, the day when all of my holiday decorations will be taken down. We’re experiencing a polar vortex according to national news services (or -11 degrees, with a wind chill factor of -36 degrees), and somehow it seems appropriate to close this season with some holiday gift tags that can be used next Christmas. Besides, a few weeks before Christmas 2014, I will be doing jumping jacks because I had the foresight to get all of my tags made early!
In that spirit, I combed the Web for 12 appealing gift tags that you can download and print. Some of the designs were released in 2013 and others are older ones, but all of them are great accents for your holiday packages. The small round ones, of course, can also be used as cupcake toppers. You can even decorate a tree, window or mirror with them, make a fluttery mobile, or hang a paper garland made of gift tags on your tree or over a mantle. Click on the photos to download the digital file(s). Please note that photos do not show every tag design included in the digital file.
